CBS has announced the availability of CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service, on Google’s smart TV platform Android TV.
For $5.99 a month, CBS All Access will offer Android TV users thousands of episodes from the current season, previous seasons and classic shows on demand, as well as the ability to stream their local CBS Television station live in more than 85 markets across the U.S.,including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Philadelphia, with more to be added soon.
CBS All Access subscribers can also use the service on their Android and iOS devices via the CBS App, online at CBS.com, through Chromecast, Roku players and Roku TV, with additional connected devices being added in the coming months.
“We’ve seen a tremendous response from users on the connected device and mobile platforms we’ve brought the CBS All Access service to thus far,” said Marc DeBevoise, Executive Vice President and General Manager, CBS Digital Media. “In fact, subscribers are watching twice the amount of CBS content as non-subscribers on digital platforms. Bringing the service to Android TV gives viewers more flexibility and access to CBS’s world-class programming on whichever platform they choose.”
Android TV users will have the opportunity to watch clips though the app and browse the entire library of full episodes without being a CBS All Access subscriber. New subscribers can sign up by visiting http://www.cbs.com/all-access/androidtv. Current CBS All Access subscribers can simply log in using their existing username and password.
